Sorting Through the New 2018 Jeep Wrangler News




If you haven't heard, the iconic Jeep Wrangler has undergone a pretty incredible transformation. An evolution from classic heritage to modern marvel.

Although, you might not be able to tell at first glance--and, you might not even be able to tell by model-year, either.

Like the switch that Jeep pulled with the 2017 and all-new 2017 Jeep Compass back in the summer, we'll see a 2018 model (the Jeep Wrangler JK) and an all-new 2018 model (the Jeep Wrangler JL) for the transition.

This is huge news, because this rock-crawling SUV hasn't seen a significant redesign since about 2006.

We're pleased to see that the overall design still looks clean and classic--but we're looking forward to the upgrades.



All-New 2018 Jeep Wrangler JL vs 2018 Jeep Wrangler JK

With so many changes coming in this massive update to a beloved treasure, it's impossible not to compare the two generations.

It'll also help to clear up a few things for Jeep fans who are planning their next purchase. See JK vs JL here:

  • The seven-slot grille, removable doors, removable top, fold-down windshield, exposed roll cage, and rear swing gate carry over
  • 4WD will still come standard on all models
  • The new model offers an updated 3.6-liter V6 engine paired to an eight-speed automatic or a six-speed manual, and will add a 270-horsepower turbocharged four-cylinder and even a 3.0-liter diesel engine within the next year or so
  • The cabin for the JL generation has been significantly improved with more soft-touch materials and attractive digital screens
  • For the all-new 2018 model, Jeep drops the "Unlimited" name for four-door SUVs--the new model will be referred to as Jeep Wrangler 2-Door and Jeep Wrangler 4-Door
  • The all-new 2018 Jeep Wrangler uses 33-inch all-terrain tires and boasts an 84.1:1 crawl ratio



All-New 2018 Jeep Wrangler vs T-Rex

So, we know that the newest 2018 Jeep Wrangler boasts a lot of improvements over its previous generation.

But, how does the all-new 2018 Jeep Wrangler hold up to a Tyrannosaurus Rex?

  • The Jeep Wrangler has 4WD; the T-Rex only has 2-Leg Drive because its tiny arms are much too small to be helpful
  • The new Jeep Wrangler has an iconic seven-slot grille; a T-Rex has 60 teeth
  • A T-Rex has a very small cerebrum; the all-new Jeep Wrangler's new turbo engine is smaller than the standard V-6 engine, but it packs a punch
  • There is no fossil evidence that T-Rex cared for its young for any extended period of time; the all-new Jeep Wrangler comes with all sorts of safety features
  • The T-Rex actually lived closer to humans than it did to the Stegosaurus; the all-new 2018 Jeep Wrangler is available for order now
